Spread the Word: Do Not Use the Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch
Protect Women's Health Safety
Tell women about the new warning by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) belatedly acknowledging the increased dangers of using the Ortho Evra Birth Control patch. The FDA now admits that women who use Ortho Evra are exposed to about 60 percent more estrogen than if they were taking a typical birth control pill. This is critical because increased estrogen means increased risks. The agency still allowed the drug on the market and is stubbornly unwilling to ban it. Get more details from Public Citizen.
